to the mayor's budget director. >> thank you, supervisor, through the chair, kate howard, mayor's budget director. that is quite a set of questions you have asked, but i think all onpoint. when the city decides to move forward with a supplemental in the middle of a year, that discretionary, as this is. it has to be such an important priority that we have to do the front loading that you described and for that reason the mayor is very supportive and the da and the department on the status of women need these services out and out in the community as soon as possible. in terms of what it means. >> you are making a commitment for the next year as well that the mayor will be approving these positions in his budget? that is going to be submitted, that will have increased staffing for the department of status of women and for the d.a.'s office? >> in terms of what i would expect for next year, i would expect to see these positions included in the mayor's budget submission going forward. when you move forward a supplemental in the middle of the year, it does have annual consequences. that doe
morning, everyone. i'm kate howard. i'm the mayor's budget director. i'm here to just to talk briefly about the really exciting opportunity that i think is going to be coming up in the city, which is announcement of our new chief data officer. some people may think that the budget office is mostly being countered, but really our office is focused on how do we make government more efficient, how do we make it more effective, and how do we use information to make better decisions. and i think that's why the mayor has asked that the chief data officer sit in my office. so that they have access to financial information as well as a team of people who are already inclined to work on analytical problems. so, as the mayor and board president chiu indicated we'll be hiring a chief data officer looking for the best and brightest people. so, if you know of people or if you yourself are interested, i'd love to talk to you, so, find me after. the role of this person is to figure out how do we build on what we've already done in terms of open data, how do we make government more transparent, what
of light on this issue? >> supervisor, kate howard, through the chair. generally, what you have described is correct. there were a number of grants that the district attorney used over the last several years to support victim services among other services that they provided. in last year's budget the general fund did come behind and support the continuation of those services. >> do you have a perspective on that? >> our way of looking at it when grant funds go away, it's discretionary and part of the board of supervisors whether they want to back fill the position with general fund monies. that we consider this to be an increase in general fund cost to the department that otherwise those positions would have terminated, which is the case with grant-funded positions. and so we thought that -- we
'll be happy to answer it now, supervisor. kate howard. so, the $38 million reflected in the controller's six-month report essentially is good news to the city's deficit number. the way that i would interpret it is that as we did last year, we've spread our fund balance over two years. so, this would bring down the overall deficit by about $19 million in each year. that's offset l, however, by the supplementals that we talked about. so, a little to the good here about $19 million each year, a little to the bad, $8 million to the bad on supplementals that we talked about so far. so, i would say it's modest good news in each year. >> thank you. >> and to be clear, ms. howard, the supplementals we've discussed thus far, not others that may come down the pike this year? >> that's correct. >> and we have assumed in our projection of 38 million that you will need the general re serve because of the various deficits that we have and the number of departments that i'll go over with you in just a moment. okay, so both property taxes and realignment taxes coming in from the state are -- both are projec
mayor's office of budget. >> good afternoon, supervisors, kate howard, [speaker not understood]. i'm here before you to approve an event over the supplemental that's before you appropriating fund from our state revenue lost reserve to a variety of programs that were reduced in the governor's budget last year. i also have with me staff from the human services agency, the department of aging adult services, juvenile probation, the department of public health, and the arts commission in the event that there are specific questions about any of the appropriations. as you will remember, last year the governor's budget proposed and it was adopted by the legislature a number of reductions in both local revenues and direct cuts to services that affect the city of san francisco. in anticipation of those cuts, the city appropriated $15 million pending final approval of the budget and so those funds are set aside in the event of state cuts. we are recommending in the supplemental the approval of appropriation and $6.6 million from the state reserve fund. the item before you originally requeste
